City designer Shilpa Reddy showcased her collection, Gold Fragrance of the Raw Feminine, at India Fashion Week Dubai, 2014.
The presence of names like Vikram Phadnis, Jaya Misra, Archana Kochhar, Shahid Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Soha Ali Khan among others, made the event stylish. Shilpa's collection represented the raw beauty of a woman who embraces her sexuality, and is proud of it. The entire collection is made in raw, unbleached cotton, Chanderi and silk. The fabrics are mostly in their original colour, off white, combined with dark hues of red, green and purple. Shilpa's cuts for this collection are sensual, yet they don't take away from her signature style of structure and Indo-Western cuts. Lehengas, anarkalis, palazzos teamed up with jackets, stitched saris with structured bustiers and jacket blouses are the salient features of the collection. Shilpa was the show stopper at her own show and set the ramp on fire clad in a gold and red South Indian dhoti-inspired sari adorned with gold temple jewellery. The collection effortlessly married feminity with androgyny, making it graceful and quirky, yet in sync.
